How can I keep my number?

Maaz Bin Khalid Updated by Maaz Bin Khalid

When you're switching carriers, you can take your number with you from the old carrier to the new one. That process is called 'porting your number'. Porting your number from another carrier to US Mobile is quick and simple, and you do it while activating your new line during the activation process

We offer activation on a physical SIM card and e-SIM as well! For e-SIM compatible devices, you can get started right away but if you want a physical SIM card, you can order one from our shop page. Once you’ve ordered and received your starter kit, go to the activation page and follow the prompts.

Once you have entered your IMEI for the compatibility check, you can choose I want to transfer my number

Fill out the following information:

  1. Enter your phone number
  2. Choose your carrier from the drop-down list.
If you are unable to find your carrier, please select its parent carrier or any other carrier. Please ensure the phone number and account number are entered correctly.
  1. Enter your Account Number*  (this is your account number with your current carrier)
  2. Enter your Password or PIN* (this is the PIN that you use with your current carrier. If your carrier doesn't require a PIN, leave this blank)
  3. Click Continue
  4. Continue with the rest of the activation steps

Once you've completed the activation process, you'll be able to see the status of your port-in request. The line will also show up in your account:

Clicking More Details will show you the current status of your port request:

We'll email you when your port completes or if we need more information. The process of porting a number can take between 24 to 48 hours to complete for most wireless numbers and between 5-7 business days, sometimes even longer, for landline numbers. 

To bring your number to US Mobile:

  • Your current service carrier must allow it
  • The phone number should be active
  • There should be no outstanding payment against your number
  • The number should not be under any contract. 

If you need help or have questions, feel free to contact us at, or via chat
